After 3 years of living in Chennai, it was time for me and my wife to shift to Vishakhapatnam. I am a government officer and get transferred every 3 years. We know how difficult it is to pack our bags and shift to another city to start a new life. Three years ago, when I shifted to Chennai, I had a very bad experience while moving. The packers and mover lost some of my belongings, including a TV. I didn’t want to hire this service again, but we had no choice. That’s when we started looking for packers and movers in Chennai.
We talked to six different service providers in our area. Some asked for 10000 rupees while some others asked for 15000 rupees. Some said that goods would be transported in three days while some others suggested a good seven days’ time. We were surprised that most packers and movers did not even provide any insurance.
UrbanClap saved us!
We were shocked and surprised with the rates. We had many expenses lined up as we moved to the new city and couldn’t afford such a high price. We had bitter experiences with these service providers before and remained suspicious if we will get good service this time. That’s when I talked to a colleague who had recently shifted from Bangalore. He told me about an app called UrbanClap that provides all home services that you need at a very reasonable price.
I quickly downloaded the app from Google Play Store. While it was downloading, my heart was beating fast. It could have been my last attempt to find a decent service provider, or we would have to rely on a shady business again and only hope to receive our goods on time. I read the reviews of the app and was quite relieved to find that people like us were getting benefitted with their services.
As soon as the app downloaded, I quickly opened it to find the service providers. However, I had to register for the app first. It took only 1 minute to fill all the personal details and click on sign up to become a registered user of the app.
I directly went to the search tab, logged my location and typed ‘packers and movers.’ I had to fill in a few more details about the place where I am shifting to (within a city, outside city, etc.). The app asked me a few questions to help me understand my shifting needs better. We have to shift to a 3BHK house. The app asked us our shifting location, date of shifting, etc. That’s it.
As soon as I filled in all the details, I was assured that I would be given the best deal and the best service providers as well. On the designated day and time, the packers and movers arrived. They helped us pack everything securely. They did legitimate paperwork as well and told us that goods will take at least 5 days to reach us. Though we were quite apprehensive of their service, they assured that the goods will be on our door before the fifth day only.
They did exactly what they had promised. On the evening of the fourth day, a small loading truck stopped in front of our house. Their local staff was present there with their transport papers. They were quite friendly and didn’t create a scene when we told them we lived on the second floor. Past few packers and movers have been very finicky about moving goods to the first or second floor but they were very helpful.
We were really happy with the effort they had put in to ensure that we got our home in order.
You should try UrbanClap!
There are hundreds of apps and websites providing you names and numbers of various service providers. Unfortunately, most are not able to provide the right services to their customers. Some companies listed there are either fake or have very low standards of quality which may ruin your experience altogether.
At UrbanClap, all the service providers are genuine, registered and licensed. I am very happy that they take great care in selecting the service providers they work with. This is not a platform where anyone could register a fake business to earn a quick buck. It is for real professionals only. Using the UrbanClap app, you can get in touch with any professional service provider who guarantees quality and satisfaction.
The app is incredibly simple to use and finding service of your choice is easy too. Mr. Sathish Kumar and his team from Yashpathy Packers and Movers did an incredible job, and I am very thankful for their prompt and friendly service. I recommend them for every home shifting business in Chennai. I would also like to thank UrbanClap for saving the day for us. I recommend their service to everyone.
